Every year around mid January the Silvaplana Lake freezes over and turns into a snowkite paradise - a vast space free of obstacles with magnificent mountain views. It's considered one of the worlds greatest snowkite spots. Being 1815 m above sea-level it's known for reliable snow conditions with heaps of sparkling powder. Lots of fun is guaranteed as the lake is kitable at every wind direction, kite sizes usually varying between 8 to 12 m². Feel free to choose between riding skis or a snowboard, depending on your skill level and liking.
Have you ever dreamed of experiencing the snow in a totally different way? Maybe even toyed with learning how to kitesurf in summer? We'll don't hesitate any longer and let your sense of adventure kick in. The Silvaplana Lake within the Engadin Valley offers perfect conditions to get a headstart to this amazing sport.
Free of trees, rocks or any other obstacles the lake is the perfect spot to ensure a safe learning environment whilst offering supreme riding conditions and spectacular views.
Snowkiting is for everyone who loves the snow, kids and grown-ups alike. Therefor we cater to students of almost all ages. It doesn't matter if you're a total kite novice or maybe have already gained some experience on the water, we're eager to introduce you to this amazing sport and help you make fast progress till you can't suppress that stoked grin any longer.
Silvaplana and the Engadin Valley are also about variety with plenty activities to choose from. Whether you're after snowkiting, amazing alpin or cross-country slopes, freestyling in the terrain park, snowshoeing tours or maybe some ice skating - it never gets boring around here. And if you've had enough of sports for the day St. Moritz has a vibrant events and nightlife scene just waiting for you to explore.
Plus if you just can't get enough feel free to join us for a Zumba class in the evening or for some functional training at our gym.
Beginner Snowkite Course
The beginner snowkiting course is a two-day group course with an instructor-student ratio of one to four or less.
You will have six lesson hours within two days during which we cover theoretical knowledge & safety training as well as kite handling and of course actual snowkiting.
Risk and liability insurance are also included as are the kite and harness.
You'll begin your course using the kite in the snow and practicing its handling without wearing skis or a snowboard. Once you've gained enough confidence we'll progress to wearing skis or a snowboard and start riding!
Everybody who enrolls in the course will be given a free "Sports Paradise" T-shirt or a Mystic gift!
Join us for that extra fitness boost. In the evenings we offer fun Zumba classes or uniquely tailored functional training lessons at our gym.
We're happy to arrange an array of activities for you. May it be guided snowshoeing, cross-country or alpin skiing trips - our local staff knows the area like no other and will make sure to put together an unforgettable experience for you.
